Media reaction to Mavs? title-clinching victory

Mike Wise, Washington Post: We were witnesses, all right ? witness to a flat-out schooling by men who once took their own lumps on the NBA?s grandest stage, who didn?t turn their free agent signings into a WWE Raw event before they had won bupkus, who knew the pain of losing here hurt too much to treat getting out of the second round like Carnival in Rio. And now that Dirk and Dallas?s locker room of redemption has sent the Heat and The Forsaken One into a shell-shocked summer of frustration ? one only Dan Gilbert and northeastern Ohio could understand last July when LeBron left without a note (karma?s a killer, young fella) ? now comes the lesson to take with him: Of all the things LeBron James could learn from the past 11 months, and especially the past two weeks, none is more important than the message Jason Kidd and DeShawn Stevenson communicated on Sunday night, the night an old point guard, one 7-foot all-star, a hell of a bench and their teammates dropped the game?s most talented trio to capture the NBA championship: Being famous and young guarantees nothing.
